The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded Planned Parenthood of New Hampshire $1 million after the state legislature voted to cut off the stream of taxpayer money to the largest operator in the nation's abortion industry.
It's just one of a number of states where local managers and officials have decided against providing tax money to Planned Parenthood, only to see their work overturned through what one critic calls government by fiat.
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser says the New Hampshire dispute is just another example of the Obama administration's abuse of states' rights.
And this happened in a state that prides itself on its love for the 10th Amendment.
"A place like New Hampshire is central to states' rights. It's part of their heritage and history," Dannenfelser said. "Obama and Planned Parenthood know that the only place they can exert their will when it comes to funding is to overstep in the way they just have in New Hampshire."
